Good morning, Hardwood Houdini readers, NBA fans, and wayward souls who got lost on the internet and wound up here!
It’s the first Monday of the new year, and you know what that means: National Weigh-In Day! I know I’m serious about getting in better shape this year – I actually did an aerobics workout with my wife last night, in front of the bay window for the whole neighborhood to see! I’ll sacrifice a little pride if it means shedding some pounds.
Enough about me – what do we have in store for you in today’s links?
Scores and recaps for last night’s games? [NBA.com] I got ‘em!
Your Morning Shootaround? [NBA] Got that, too!
New NBA Power Rankings? [Yahoo! Sports] Oh yeah – I’ve definitely got that!
How about your Daily Dime over at ESPN? I would never deprive you of that!
Jeremy Lin came out of nowhere to become a nice little success story during Mike D’Antoni’s time spent with the New York Knicks. Now that he is with the Los Angeles Lakers, could it be he has another Lin on his hands? [Bleacher Report]
Last nut not least: your Celtics link of the day takes a look at the contracts that will be the most painful for the Boston Celtics to try and shed as they look to rebuild. [b/r]
Speaking of contracts, there’s breaking news regarding the Celts, so stay tuned while I get my head on straight and react to it!
